Publications where scientists explain their research and findings are called jou

Publications where scientists explain
their research and findings are called journal articles. These articles include
information on the research topic (what is currently known and the question the
scientist is trying answer), the research methodology, and any results, which
are used to answer the question. In the article, this information is organized
into the following sections:
·
Title: short
statement that describes the question being answered
·
Abstract:
summary of the article
·
Introduction:
introduces the article and contains current information on what is known
about the topic, which will lead to further explanation of the researcher’s question
·
Methods: how
the study was performed
·
Results: data
from the study – usually includes tables and graphs
·
Discussion/Conclusion:
interprets the results relating to the original question
·
References:
list of literary sources used in the article
Instructions
Part 1: Initial post (60 points)
Your
initial post (also called a response) will contain four parts which are
explained below. Please be sure to
number each part in your post.
1)
Go to the website “Science in the Classroom” and
pull up the annotated article “You are what you eat…at least, your brain is”: https://www.scienceintheclassroom.org/research-papers/you-are-what-you-eatat-least-your-brainopens
in new window). For this assignment, you will focus only on the ABSTRACT.
·
On the left side of the website, you will see a
gray box titled “learning lens.” Click on the yellow box beside “glossary” (a
check will appear). This will highlight specific terms in yellow. List and define the terms that are
highlighted in the abstract only (there are 7 total).
2) After
reading, summarize the abstract using your own words. If you need any help with
this, feel free to contact me. There is no word limit for this part.
3) List
one thing that you found difficult to understand (or are still having
difficulty understanding…this is ok! There are times when even scientists
struggle with reading parts of an article.) Explain why you found this difficult (i.e. was it terminology, are
some of the topics unfamiliar, etc?).
4) Create
a citation for the article (be sure to
use the information in the “paper details” section of the website – the
annotated article title isn’t the original title). Feel free to use either MLA
or APA format. If you need a refresher on how to create a citation, please
visit the following websites:
